Called in for Sunday lunch. Really nice traditional food cooked to perfection. Wide range of well presented beers. Staff also very good with timely service. Afternoon tea was being served as we left which looked worth consideration another time. Recommended

Wide variety of seafood options and a good selection for those of us who prefer land loving proteins. Good devices and atmosphere and a very good looking take on afternoon tea that I'll be taking my children to try very soon. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit!

Our meal was superb. I started with cornish sardines in a tomato and chili... More

Went twice during 4 day trip to Ripponden to use free wifi, and very glad we did. Two great meals served by friendly staff. Great value mid week with the two course £12.95 or 3 course £15.95 options and happy hour on drinks. Tasty, well presented meals. Thoroughly recommend the place.

We'd booked to sample the picnic tea which comes served on a miniature picnic table and bench. The food was lovely and fresh, open sandwiches, quiche, hot potato wedges and Calamari, a... More

I highly recommend the afternoon tea here! Masses of food (hot and cold), cakes, soups, cookies, scones, calamari - everything you could ask of an afternoon tea and even more besides! All homemade and, with a twist on the traditional presentation, it's served on mini wooden picnic benches and comes with cute mini milk bottles of strawberry smoothies. Looked and... More

Our impressions, very nice contemporary bar and restaurant. There were only two of us dining, quite a few tables for two available, unfortunately the one we were led to... More
